Earth Vegan Shoes

February 3, 2010

Desperately in need of a new pair of vegan athletic shoes, I’ve been searching the internet for weeks to find the perfect pair at a decent price.  (It takes me forever to buy everything.  I add things to my online cart and then rethink, over and over for days.)  I really wanted to try Earth…

I Ate January 2010

February 1, 2010

First of all, I want to say thank you to each and every one of you that have visited my blog, followed me on Twitter, fanned the site on Facebook.  It means so much to me that you’ve supported my first month of blogging on I Eat Trees and I get excited over each and…

Quick Vegan Veggie Miso Soup

January 30, 2010

I haven’t been feeling very well for the past few days, and a pot of vegan soup usually seems to do the trick.  It’s really easy to whip up using whatever veggies I happen to have at any given time, and everyone gobbles it up (even if I did make it as get well soup…

Vegan Sauerkraut Tempeh Panini

January 28, 2010

Back in college, for some reason or another, I ended up buying a panini press (probably celebrating student loans).  I have to say though, this baby has gotten a lot of use over the years.  It’s just more fun to throw your basic lunchtime sandwich on it and have a toasty, melty panini.  And who…

Kind Vegan Candied Ginger Pears

January 27, 2010

These candied ginger pears are the second vegan dessert recipe that I’ve tried from Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet (page 279) and they are quite tasty.  They aren’t extremely sweet or rich, which makes them a nice finishing touch to a meal, rather than the belt-unbuckling chocolate cake.  The candied pears have a nice spice…

Kind Vegan Bok Choy With Ume Vinaigrette

January 26, 2010

This is the second recipe I’ve tried from Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet, and I’m really loving the new ingredients I picked up after reading the book (umeboshi vinegar for one thing).  Alicia’s superhero recipes definitely have a fresh and simple take on meals that I absolutely love.  The bok choy recipe I tried tonight…

Vegan Gomashio

January 26, 2010

When I read about gomashio in Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet, I sort of passed it over. But when I went to make her Bok Choy recipe, I realized it called for the stuff.  Since it looked simple enough to make I decided to give it a shot, and it turns out gomashio is one…

Granovita Vegan Brown “Steak” Sauce

January 26, 2010

I love Granovita brown sauce! It’s perfect for people who love steak sauce but have moved past the steak.  Tangy and slightly sweet, much like other popular steak sauces, but this one is vegan and gluten-free.  This stuff is super tasty on just about anything from sandwiches to faux meats, and great to have on…

Surf Sweets Vegan Sour Worms

January 26, 2010

I really love these Surf Sweet Sour Worms for my sour vegan candy cravings and I must say, they are especially perfect for taking to the movies.  Okay, I know we aren’t supposed to take candy to the movies, but sometimes I just happen to have some in my purse, and hey, it isn’t like…

Twilight Vegan Candy Bar From Go Max Go Foods

January 26, 2010

I wish I could say that I’ve tried all of the Go Max Go vegan candy bars, because they all look absolutely delicious, but I’ve only had the pleasure of consuming a couple of the Twilight variety.  Twilight is made up of nougat and caramel, all housed in a happy chocolate coating and if you…
